If you’re the boss, you set the tone for your team. If you’re upset or flustered, your team will pick up on it. When you’re angry, they react to it.
So, when you’re out of emotional sorts, find a way to get back in balance. Take a moment to set the tone you want before you show up to your team. If you want energy on your team, model it.
Example is your most powerful tool. Make the tone you set the tone you want.
